Sanbiki no saru

Or the Three Wise Monkeys of Buddhism. They are in Toshôgû Shrine in Nikko, about an hour from Tokyo by train, an incredible place in the woods so beautiful and peaceful. These little monkeys are known in Japanese as Sanbiki no saru 三匹の猿 and they embody the principle “see no evil, hear no evil, speak no evil” (Mizaru, Kikazaru and Iwazaru in that order)
